The Top 7... Game-Changing Cheats

Invincibility is nice. Infinite ammo and armor are pretty useful, too. Level skipping is a lazy gamer's dream come true...

Cheating, though, can be so much more! Why ask for an extra life when the right code will give you an entire army, or the power of a god? Why settle for a shortcut when hidden humor, violence, sex and evil are waiting to be discovered? Why bother with mirrored maps or secret difficulty settings when a truly "special mode" will modify your favorite game beyond recognition?

The following cheats, patches, filters and bonuses unlock way more than a little help - they unlock a whole new experience.

Star Wars games have always lacked a certain something. They feature the obligatory aliens, droids, blasters and spaceships, of course, as well as the stirring orchestral sounds of John Williams cashing yet another royalty check. Sometimes they'll even throw in a Mark Hamill cameo to keep you mildly interested and keep him off the streets.

But the one thing you never get to do - and the one thing that all of us have been dying to do since Obi-Wan first terrorized the Cantina - is dismember, decapitate and otherwise destroy stuff with a lightsaber. If that old geezer could slice enemies' arms off with a mere flick of his wrinkly wrist, 
why can't we?

Well, actually, we can. And so can you.

Here's the trick. Load up Star Wars: Jedi Knight II - Jedi Outcast for the PC and hit the "Shift" and "~" keys together. A prompt should appear. Type "devmapall" to unlock cheats and "g_saberrealisticcombat 999" to unlock dismemberment. Realistic combat, indeed!


Yeah, by adding these bonus sections, we've technically included 14 entries in a Top 7 feature. Yeah, we just love you that much.

Anyway, did you realize that Urban Chaos: Riot Response, the thoroughly mediocre shooter that nobody played in 2006, is actually the totally terrifying survival-horror gorefest that nobody played in 2006? It's true!

Simply dust off your last-gen console and enter the following combination at the main menu: Up, Up, Down, Down, Circle (or Y), Down, Up, Circle (or Y)

That'll open the cheat screen, where you can type "BURNINGBULLET" and then "KEEPYOURHEAD" for the Headless Horseman effect shown above.

Next up... dinosaurs!

    I didn't think that it was too long, I mean, would you complain if a really good book had too many pages? Great article G.R.!!

  • Rodrigo90 - September 16, 2008 3:18 p.m.

    Jedi Outcast was a GREAT game, but the standard dismemberment (wich included dismemebering hands and/or arms) was JUST OK. But the cheat really added a lot to the experience. IS IT SO F***** HARD TO TRY SOMETHING LIKE THAT ON EVERY STAR WARS GAME??? I was so excited to knoe that I was going to be able to play as a jedi in BFII, but the lightsabers completely sucked! they looked like crap, the beam was even separated from the, well whatever you call the part you grab with your hand (I'm argentinian so I'm kinda missing that word). the didn't dismember absolutely ANYTHING! whenever I killed someone it looked like if I was hitting them with some sort of electrified bat. Jedi Outcast and Academy really were the games that best used lightsabers.

    wow, this is one of my favorites. and honestly, if this article was any smaller, then it wouldnt have been as good. great job Charlie
  • GoldenMe - September 16, 2008 3:54 a.m.

    7 pages may be a bit much, but the videos did help. Awesome article as always. *Hurries back back to page 7*
  • GamesRadarCharlieBarratt - September 16, 2008 3:48 a.m.

    I hate an excessive page count as much as you do, Cynwyddon, so I worked hard to include as many cool image comparisons and videos as possible. Hopefully, I earned your clicks.
  • bioshocker - September 16, 2008 2:39 a.m.

    I liked the cheat in COD 4 where your enemies turn in to a bunch of tiers when you kill themm
  • masewindu - September 16, 2008 2:34 a.m.

    Gamesradar the site that keeps on givin :)
  • GamesRadarBrettElston - September 16, 2008 2:29 a.m.

    Yes, it is another seven pager, but look at all the content per page. There's a lot to justify the length. Love that Pen and Ink mode!
  • Smeggs - September 16, 2008 1:08 a.m.

    I'm wondering if this is pathetic or not...I actually played much better in COD4 when I had "Ragtime Warfare" on. The speeding up for some reason helped me nail enemies better, and it seemed like I was dodging bullets and slashing people at the speed of sound.
  • Cynwyddon - September 16, 2008 1:06 a.m.

    7 pages... ugh...
  • Smeggs - September 16, 2008 1:03 a.m.

    Its incredibly sad when a game played in it's wireframe form looks better than when played in its finished 3-D color form.
  • Curtis_Stone - September 16, 2008 12:37 a.m.

    meh, canine companions was better...
  • Skykid - September 24, 2008 1:22 a.m.
